What nonpharmaceutical stimulants are most effective at giving energy and maintaining wakefullness? I'm familiar with eleuthero ("siberian ginseng"), which works fairly well, but I'd be very interested to know what else is out there, besides caffeine. Particularly, it would be good if there were some things that worked well in the short term, i.e. got in and out of your system quickly.
I suppose I'd be interested in knowing about drugs, too, so long as they're not the usual suspects--you know, modafanil, amphetamine, ritalin, etc.
